Well, Sticks was asked, I'm told, but declined the invitation, apparently for logistical reasons (plane flight, etc.) as much as anything else.
By the way: maybe I'm getting old, but are dunk contests just plain boring these days? I mean, there's really not much more that can be done. To me, the NBA slam dunk contest is like the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue: it was great and exciting when I was 14, but now there's a certain sameness to it all, as impressive as both may look.
There's an analogy for ya, eh?
